Fangirl Friday: 9.13.13

Woohoo! It's Friday and the weather is GORGEOUS!

CoverGirl Catching Fire Capitol Collection Glosstinis

c/o Nouveau Cheap: Sulfur Blaze, Rouge Red, Pyro Pink, and Seared Bronze.

1. G at Nouveau Cheap ALWAYS has the scoop on the latest... So, it's no surprise that she has posted pics of the first and second CoverGirl Hunger Games Catching Fire Capitol Collection Displays. If you've been waiting with bated breath for this collection, head over there toutdesuite to check it out! Even better? Swatches are on the way! (Yes, I'll be stalking her blog allweekendlong.)

2. Forget the Galaxy Note II or III or whatever... I'm back to being an Apple Fangirl again!

16 GB iPhone 5s or 32 GB iPhone 5c?

So here's the thing... I really liked my Galaxy Note when I first got it. Honestly, I did. But then I upgraded from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean, and my Note was noticeably slower. And then its battery up and decided it would decide when it would charge, thankyouverymuch. So, I'm running out of juice, like. all. the. time. Ugh. I'm so over Android. I want my Apple back, Apple back, Apple back...

3. I FINALLY found a great Chambray Shirt... at Old Navy!


It's their mid-tone chambray, and it was on sale for $20! Now if only the weather would get cool enough to let me wear it... :)

AND

Whilst shopping, Peanut was entertained by a lovely plush Koala Security Blanket, and may or may not have eaten half of the price tag. (She totally did.)



Happy Weekend!

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.

Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit. 
Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times. 
This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027, today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION...

Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and then add in some shimmer and glitter.
